As we near the end of a challenging year, we wish to thank all of our StopTheMillennium supporters. Together we have — so far — kept our community safer, slowed down LA City Hall’s law breaking, and shined a bright light on Hollywood Center, a proposed skyscraper project on top of an earthquake fault that is symptomatic of everything sick in the body politic of Los Angeles.
We do not have an update on the soil age dating results from the trenching earlier this year. We surmise that the silence is a cover up. We don’t say that lightly. Given the history of the Hollywood Center project, and developer Millennium Partners’ notorious leaning tower project in San Francisco, it would not be the first, or probably the last, cover up.
Let’s stay vigilant.
We are reminded by yesterday’s Wall Street Journal about one of the deadliest building failures in U.S. history: the Champlain Towers condo collapse. We were the first to link that disaster with Millennium Partners’ San Francisco slow-motion collapse. We were then followed by national media, including CNN, making the same comparison. See our posts here: In the Wake of the Florida Condo Collapse + Surfside Condo Collapse & Millennium, Powerful CNN Report.
The unfolding drama in San Francisco, Millennium Partners: That Sinking Feeling + SF Millennium Tower Tilts Quarter Inch in Four Days, highlights not only Millennium’s dangerous construction practices, but also their total lack of credibility. Their claim that the Hollywood Center site is safe for building conflicts with all reputable evidence, including from the California and U.S. Geological Surveys. Such amount of state and federal warning bells is unprecedented. But will city officials hear them? Or will they hear the FBI knocking on their doors?

As we ring in 2022, we wish for a city government that embraces integrity and the law. (Hope springs eternal.) And we wish for a happy and healthy new year to all.
Thank you for considering making a year-end donation. Among many expenses, we still owe for our geologist’s work.
